This is the story ofBridget andAnnie,
Nick and his friend Hector from Argentina.
Hector andAnnie want to get married.
Bridget also wants to get married,
And Nickjust wants to get away.
And they're all from your mother.
- Shall I?
'How many bridesmaids is Annie having?
You will like this one, Annie.
'Have you booked Westminster Abbey yet?
'I'm coming to London soon, to help you.'
Hector, we want our pet wedding, don't we?
- Well, she must not interfere any more.
It's OK. I won't let her. Come here.
It's all football, football, football with Miguel.
What do you expect from Spanish men?
So, I said, 'Bye- bye, Miguel.'
And Annie and Hector are so happy.
It's weddings, weddings, weddings.
What you need is a new man in your life.
What about that gorgeous…Nick?
He's great as Pierce Steele in London On Fire.
Well, let me introduce you to the new Nick.
But all he talks about is girls.
- And motorbikes.
Ask him to take his jacket off!
The problem is I'm always the bridesmaid,
I need a drink. Would you like one?
I'd love to marry a funny, good- looking man.
By the way, Nick, I saw London On Fire.
- Will you do an interview for Channel 9?
But all he talks about is girls.
Will you do an interview for Channel 9?

Hector's mother is driving me mad!
Maybe I should just cancel the wedding.
I suppose marriage will mean sacrifices.
No more shaving your legs on the toilet,
- No more midnight chocolate feasts.
But then…you will be Mrs Romero.
She's being very nice to me. Very nice.
She was talking about weddings,
You don't think she wants to get married too,
Well, you said she was being very nice to you.
Once you're married, they've got you!
- No, you don't, you think he's an idiot.
But now he wears a fireman's uniform.
He's so sexy in London On Fire.
Tomorrow I will interview him for Channel 9…
You'll just have to wait and see.
There is one good thing about getting married.
It's when the bridegroom, that's you,
is taken out by his best man, that's me,
- Yep, to your fantastic life as a single man.
Goodbye to eating curry for breakfast.
Don't worry, Hector, we will face this together.
Thank you, Nick. You are a real friend.
In England, we do crazy things!
We party, we go to Brighton, we dress up…
So I am here with Nick Jessop,
straight from the set of London On Fire.
- Good evening.
Do you think London On Fire accurately reflects
on London's emergency services?
Dunno! But the women are good- looking.
- In the flames, when you're filming.
Do you take your jacket off sometimes?
- Do you want to take your jacket off now?
You carry them out of the house that is on fire.
Now! Carry me like you do on London On Fire!
This is Bridget Evans with Nick Jessop
- Do you have to?
I was going to say, 'This wedding…'
- This wedding is a nightmare.
- Let's celebrate not getting married.
but meet me at Leo's Cafe at 5pm.
You must tell your mother. Thank goodness
she's thousands of miles away in Argentina.
Make sure you tell her before she leaves.
Hi, Nick. Did you have a good day?
And I was interviewed by Bridget.
she was going to ask me to marry her!
My mother is coming to London.
But we have cancelled the wedding.
I was supposed to meet both of them
this afternoon in different places.
I'm glad we're not getting married!
- What or who is more important than me?
Speak to me in English. I'm taking lessons.
Where's Annie? Where's my little bride?
Hector, you've kept her beauty a secret.
Annie is the prettiest, sweetiest,
Didn't you tell her the wedding is off?
Wait a few years before we get married.
So, have you booked Westminster Abbey yet?
Hector's mother comes to dinner.
But why does Annie behave badly?
